The optical density could be increased by controlling the ink viscosity during the imaging process in which inks were more concentrated and by controlling the dynamic surface tension. By using inks that showed a faster increase in viscosity during the imaging process, more pigments remained on the paper surface. The higher viscosity of the ink appeared to reduce the forces that caused the ink to penetrate deeply into the paper fibers. On the other hand, non-printed areas on the paper reduced when the dynamic surface tension of the ink was lower. It appeared that the lower dynamic surface tension of the ink increased the forces that caused the ink dot expansion on the paper. The dot size on the printed paper was found to have the correlation with the dynamic surface tension in short time range (10−3s range). However, no correlation could be seen between the static surface tension and the dot size. It is thought that the ink layer is formed in several micro seconds after the ink drops contact on paper.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
